Bear Yoga

Did You Know? Brown bears have a bulky muscle mass located above the shoulders. This hump is designed to power the forelimbs and makes them exceptionally powerful diggers. This is one of the features that distinguishes them from the more common North American black bear which lacks such a shoulder hump. (PBS)

See those claws? Brown bears have long claws that can be the length of a human finger. They are used for digging plant roots and excavating dens.

With only a short time left, see the brown bears prepare for winter on the Bear Cam.
